Note
  • "In the year 1792, Edward Bunting brought together ten of the foremost Irish harpers for a festival in Belfast. This was at the request of the Belfast Harpers Society who wished to preserve the music they feared might decline. The musicians competed as part of the festival and there were three winners. All three harpers were awarded a yearly stipend of 10 pounds by the Society. Edward Bunting subsequently visited each harper in turn to collate all of the available contemporary harp music, which he continued to publish in books until well after 1800."--Insert
